Whether an individual or company, there can be no doubt that becoming the subject of a tax enquiry can be a particularly daunting time. It is all too easy to mishandle investigations under such pressure. Our aim at Harrison North is to take away the responsibility of handling communication with the Revenue as we step in to act in the best interests of the client. At the start of the engagement, agreeing upon the most appropriate strategy and from there client input is expected to be minimal. We are always conscious of the need to ensure tax enquiries are completed as soon as possible, with minimal tax exposure and we achieve this by engaging in pro-active and cooperative communication with the Revenue. Tax enquiries are seldom clear-cut, but the sooner the correct position can be disclosed to HMRC, the sooner the process of mitigating any penalties which may be applicable can begin.
If you or your business are subject to a tax investigation by HMRC, please contact us to discuss how we can help.
